Live a Different Way

After a time of worship, prayer, and communing with the Lord received the word for the Body of Christ. Take heart, beloveds, Jesus loves us beyond our understanding!

Joy, delight, unshakeable faith I speak over you. Do not  fear what they fear, do not dread what they dread. You are mine, you have a new and living way to follow. Put your thoughts on Me, saith the Lord. Be about My business, seek first, seek FIRST My kingdom and My righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

My beloveds, why stand ye there shaking in your shoes. Let not your knees quack with fear. Be still and know that I Am God. I have more for you to bring forth on this earth. Set your thoughts on Me and turn away from all those things that would distract or insight ear in your hearts, for this is not from Me.

Listen to My voice and take delight in My words, come let us reason together, for all things are possible with Me. Beyond even what you think is a reality or a thing to do. I give you new things to do. I have your attention. Come not to Me to escape but to live, a life that draws all men unto Me.

Let the nations see your light and how you are a set apart people unto Me. I invite all who will call on My name to partake of My inheritance. I am the way, the truth, the light. Rest in Me. When you are not resting in your spirit and you are weary and panicky, you are not resting or delighting in Me.

You are to live a different way no matter the circumstances that face you. They will say, “Why are you not upset, why are you not running for you life?” Your answer will be, “For my life is found in Jesus Christ, for whoever loses His for his sake will find abundant life beyond what this world can give. My life in Him is eternal, purposeful, and not my own but His to do with as He pleases. For my Father delights to give good gifts, He is good. He is the Ancient of Days.”

Worship Me in spirit and truth, my love. Let a new song come forth from My spirit in You. Let the sound be a calm in the storm, for have I not given you  authority to speak to the wind and waves and say peace be still. Stand with Me as your authority. Be above and not below. Pull others up in this dwelling place with Me, for they will crave what I am in you when I am your all.

John 17:1-26

“After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: ‘Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.

I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them.

I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.

I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.

My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one –  I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.'”
